Ethiopia was so far known as Prison of Nationalities. Ibsaa Guutama reminds the reader of its other dimension as “Prison of Conscience”. Though the major episode of the book is “Darg’s prison”, in particular “Upper Compound Maa’ikalaawii”, it assesses prison in historical perspective, going back over 200 years of Abisiinian rule. The relation of Oromo with Nubian and Abisiinian Ethiopia is clearly put. The book also highlights the Oromo question, the struggle waged and the difficulties encountered, including the present predicament in the OLF.The diplomatic efforts made by Eastern and Western Oromo in 1919 and 1936 is briefly discussed. The caption on the cover, “Never give up”, tells all that the book is about. It is a valuable document not only for Oromo struggle but also for Ethiopian and Human Rights studies.
